Shooting of much talked about upcoming Bangla feature film Ekti Cinema-er Golpo commenced through a programme at floor 4 of Bangladesh Film Development Corporation in the capital on Saturday.
Director of the film eminent actor Alamgir, cultural personality Syed Hasan Imam, acclaimed singer Runa Laila, singer Akhi Alamgir, the film’s casts Arefin Shuvo and Kolkata-based actress Rituparna Sengupta, among others, attended the programme.
Alamgir, who last directed Nirmom in 1996, will be making his silver screen return as a director through the film. He will also act in the film. Alamgir also wrote the screenplay of the film which features Sadeq Bachchu, Saberi Alam, Zaki Alamgir and Bobby in different roles. Besides, singer Runa Laila made her debut as a music composer in the film. Runa Laila composed the song Galpo Kothar Oi Kalpolokey Jani in the film and singer Akhi Alamgir has lent her voice to the song, which has been written by noted lyricist Gazi Mazharul Anwar.
‘It is indeed a great opportunity for me to act in a film directed and acted by eminent actor Alamgir. I am looking forward to learn a thing or two from the great actor-turned-director himself,’ said actor Arefin Shuvo.
‘I have worked with Alamgir before. However, this will be the first time that I will be acting in a film directed by him. I am really excited about it,’ said Rituparna.
Alamgir, however, did not disclose much about the film’s storyline. He asked the cinemagoers to watch the film after its release.
‘I have been working on the storyline of the film for over two years now. However, I do not want to disclose much about the film right now as I want the audience to watch the film after it hits the cinemas,’ said Alamgir.
